Enjoy the Entire Process

Fleece to Yarn

The journey a fleece takes to become yarn is a fascinating one. In this all day workshop we will begin by looking at and feeling the textures of different types of fleece, followed by choosing sections of soft fleece to work with. We will continue by washing and carding the wool using both hand and drum carders. Finally students will be guided through the process of spinning yarn on a spinning wheel. If you own your own wheel that you would like to use during the spinning portion of the workshop you are welcome to bring it. All instruction and materials needed are included in the fee of this workshop.

As this is an all day event you are invited to bring your lunch to enjoy during the mid-day break.
